This is an ITQ only, not a call for tenders. FCC does not intend to create a contractual relationship, either express or implied, with any vendor, until such time that FCC signs a definitive contract with a vendor. FCC is not obligated to award any contract resulting from this ITQ and may cancel this ITQ at any time.
FCC currently sources approximately 15 photography / videography shoots per year, in various locations across Canada. Shoots may include requirements for photography, videography or a combination thereof.
FCC is releasing this ITQ to identify providers of commercial photography and video services, that it may consider for inclusion on a source list of preferred vendors. The objective of the source list will be to designate qualified vendors in different regions across Canada, that can be deployed efficiently for shoots in their region (or other regions if/where requested by FCC).
Note: Vendors are advised that no guarantee of future work is implied if selected for FCC’s source list. Vendors will be engaged as required, at FCC’s discretion.
Capabilities and Experience
To be considered for the source list, FCC will expect the vendor to:

Expressions of interest and questions
Vendors who are interested in responding to the ITQ are expected to notify FCC’s ITQ contact of their interest, via email, prior to the date and time noted in the ITQ schedule. Questions must be directed to FCC’s ITQ contact before the dates and times specified in the ITQ schedule.
Note: A written list of FCC’s responses to vendor questions will be distributed only to vendors who have expressed interest in responding to the ITQ, by notifying FCC’s ITQ contact. FCC’s list of responses will not be posted on this website.
ITQ Response Format
The ITQ response is expected to include:
Note: Any ITQ response that FCC deems does not include sufficient detail to allow FCC to assess a vendor’s capabilities and experience may be removed from consideration, at FCC’s sole discretion.
FCC will assess each response that it receives to determine, in its sole discretion, which vendors it deems best meet its requirements and objectives. FCC will reserve the right to request additional information, in any form, from any vendor that it receives an ITQ from to aid in its assessment.
Based on its assessment of ITQ responses, FCC intends to develop a short-list of respondents that it will request additional information from (such as pricing), to complete its assessment and develop the final source list.
Each vendor that submits a response to the ITQ will be advised of the outcome of the ITQ process, once determined by FCC.
